Look at all those fancy clothes
But these gonna keep us warm, just like those
What about your soul?
Is it cold?
Is it straight from the mold and ready to be sold?

Cars and phones and diamond rings, bling bling
Those are only removable things
What about your mind, does it shine?
Or are there things that concern you more than your time?

Gone
Goin'
Gone everything
Gone give a damn
Gone be the birds when they don't want to sing
Gone people all awkward with their things
Gone

Look at you out to make a deal
You try be appealing but you lose your appeal
What about those shoes you're in today?
They'll do no good on the bridges you brought along the way, oh
You willing to sell anything, gone with your head
Leave your footprints, well shame them with our words
Gone people, all careless and consumed, gone

Gone
Goin'
Gone everything
Gone give a damn
Gone be the birds if they don't want to sing
Gone people all awkward with their things
Gone

    General Commenti think this song is definately about how much people cherish material things in life more than relationships, it might be about a particular person, like an old girlfriend...or it could just be about people in general. but i totally know what he means in this song, these lyrics mean alot to me. when he says"gone people
    all awkward with their things gone." it pretty much sums it up, because hes saying that once you have all your stupid material things...youll be left always looking for something more.
